North Country Elementary

Summary:

North Country Elementary is a public elementary school in Antelope, California, serving 572 students from kindergarten to 6th grade as part of the Center Joint Unified School District.

While North Country Elementary has a diverse student population, the school faces several challenges. Its chronic absenteeism rate has significantly increased from 10.0% in 2018-2019 to 28.3% in 2022-2023, notably higher than the district and state averages. Academically, the school's proficiency rates on Smarter Balanced Assessments are generally lower than the district and state averages across all grade levels. For example, in 6th grade, only 37.68% of North Country Elementary students were proficient or better in English Language Arts, compared to 37.25% in the district and 44.16% statewide. The school's performance also varies widely across different student subgroups, with White and multi-racial students performing the lowest.

Compared to nearby schools, North Country Elementary's performance is generally lower than schools like Cyril Spinelli Elementary and Oak Hill Elementary within the Center Joint Unified School District. However, it outperforms some schools in the Twin Rivers Unified School District, such as Hillsdale Elementary and Village Elementary. The school's high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, at 67.31%, may be a contributing factor to its overall academic performance.

As you review the school rankings data, please be aware that some of the information from certain demographics is missing. The reason for this omission is that the data has been redacted from the source data itself due to low population samples in these specific demographic groups.

Redacting data from low population samples is a necessary step to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the results, as small sample sizes may not be representative of the broader population. Additionally, this measure helps protect the privacy of individuals belonging to these demographic groups.

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
